Opened to mark National Day in 2008, this small stretch of beach to the side of the old fort is a great place for a picknic and a swim but it’s more of a beach park, with a paved area for walking and games, rather than an actual swimming beach. Great to have a walk at sunset and offers great spots for barbeques with your family.
